Shockwave Therapy generates high-intensity pressure waves to stimulate healing in distinct areas in horses with musculoskeletal problems, soft tissue injuries, and bone injuries. Healing is stimulated by the microtrauma of the waves to tissue because it causes blood vessels to form and increase the delivery of blood, nutrients, and oxygen to the affected area. The Shockwave Therapy is noninvasive, but also has the deepest penetration, to be considered a gold standard among top equine veterinarians.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy:

  • Enhanced healing
  • Increased localized blood flow
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Decreases localized cell death
  • Increases connective tissue cells
  • Improves scar remodeling
  • Maximize time of wound healing

Horses that will benefit from Shockwave Therapy:

  • Horses with tendinitis
  • Horses with suspensory injuries
  • Horses with back pain
  • Horses with navicular syndrome
  • Horses with distal limb wounds
